    I'll post pics today. This is the nicest pair I'll be offering for sale this year.

    Here's the male. He's this year's hatch and is a bit light but, still lots of color and great type

    Here's the hen. She's this year's breeding hen and was last year's hatch. She's going through a molt right now. I've also included some pics of her daughter below to show how she passes along her type [​IMG]

    here's another pic of her before her molt.. she's the one on the right

    and, here's her butt last winter.. right in the middle [​IMG]

    Here's one of her daughters. I had an excellent typed cochin male in with her and two other "split for typed" cochins so I can tell which ones were hers

    Hey Erin, he's very nice. I wish mine would stand there and let me take good pictures. Good luck.

    I really should have put these two with darker partners for a mille fleur project but, so many folks have been into the calicos.. I thought they could work for that.. or you could divide them and breed to other birds for mf.
